Musculoskeletal and Hematopoietic & Lymphoreticular Systems I

This block includes two organ systems-based modules: The Musculoskeletal System module, part I, emphasizes the origin and function of skeletal muscle, cartilage and bone, and includes practical laboratory sessions. Multiple learning modalities are employed to provide students the opportunity for reinforcement of their learning. Clinical presentations and treatments of musculoskeletal diseases will be the focus of the Musculoskeletal System module, part II, in semester 3. The Hematopoietic & Lymphoreticular System module, part I, presents the fundamentals of blood, its origin, constituents and functions with an introduction to disorders of blood. The approach is multidisciplinary, involving histology, biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, immunology, pathology, pharmacology and clinical medicine. In addition to didactic lectures in the basic science areas, concepts are linked with clinical relevance through patient presentations and clinical case discussions. Learning is further facilitated by supportive activities including, but not limited to, simulation, problem based learning and laboratory exercises. Clinical presentations and treatments of hematologic diseases will be the focus of the Hematopoietic & Lymphoreticular System module, part II, in semester 3.
